Listen to the sound of your blood throbbing

Escucha cómo late tu sangre written by Mario Bojórquez
Translated from the Spanish by Verónica González

Listen to the sound of your blood throbbing
The hearing loses its rapid pulse
Listen to the veins stinging under the shield of your skin
Ride the runaway horse of your blood in the vein
Give blood to your vein
Give vein to that blood so it can flow
Now that it’s yours
Now that you go riding its sound
Watch it limp, watch the foal bitten by
Hunger
A destiny has crippled its slender gallop
The rump is rusting
Run the roads prohibited to your consciousness in your blood
Feel the thorn implanted in the hoof.
